Smartphone Detection of geomagnetic storms

Recommended Posts

I am completing an investigation of how well the common smartphone platform might be as a detector of geomagnetic storms as classified by the common Kp scale. I will post my results here from time to time, and would like to invite you all to help me 'crowdsource' any upcoming storms so that I can improve my estimates of detectability along the Kp scale. The problem is that this is being undertaken as we approach sunspot minimum so the really strong storms with Kp > 6 may be few and far between!

That would be really interesting to know. But doesn't that require people to be in very remote locations and make long term observations?
